The Gators only had three commitments in the Under Armour All-American game but there were a number of top Florida targets playing in the game including defensive end Lorenzo Carter (6-5, 235, Norcross, GA High), who played well in the nationally televised game.
“I think I did pretty good during the game,” Carter said. “I had a sack in the first quarter and someone told me that I led team Nitro in tackles so that’s pretty good. It was a great week overall going against some of the best players in the country.“
During the Under Armour game the Gators picked up another defensive lineman in Gerald Willis but according to Carter that has no impact on his recruitment.
“Gerald doesn’t affect my interest in Florida at all,” Carter said. “Gerald and I can play beside each other and he’s a strong side guy and I’m a BUCK linebacker type. Gerald is a good player and someone that I could see myself playing with in college.”
Carter flew back home to Georgia after the Under Armour game but his family stopped in Gainesville to see the coaches and campus. Carter has plans to personally talk to the Florida staff.
“I plan to call the coaches at Florida very soon,” Carter said. “I have my visits to Georgia, Florida State and LSU set up as well. It’s going to be busy next few weeks for me and my family. My family did like their visit to Florida on the way home though. My grandma really liked it because it was her first time seeing it.”
Now that the Under Armour game is over with Carter is back to school and focusing on basketball.
“I have no idea when I start school back so I’m not ready for that yet,” Carter said. “When I get back home I have basketball practice and waiting until the dead period ends so I can start the recruiting process again.”
